(NaturalNews) A Texas family is reeling with sadness and confusion after their six-year-old daughter died just a few hours after visiting an emergency room recently for what appeared to be flu-like symptoms. According to FOX 4 News in Dallas, young Tahila Johnson developed a fever, body aches, and the chills, prompting her parents to rush her to the Dallas Regional Medical Center for treatment. But rather than receive proper care, Tahila was carelessly sent away with some over-the-counter drugs, and she died just a few hours later at home in her bed.

There have been a number of reports from across the country recently of children mysteriously dying from the flu, or from complications involving flu-like symptoms. But Tahila's story is particularly disturbing, as hospital caretakers refused to even examine Tahila to see what she might have had. Instead, a nurse reportedly told Tahila's parents that the hospital was not evaluating children for the flu, and negligently proceeded to instruct them to administer Tylenol and the allergy medicine Zyrtec to the young girl.

By early the next morning, Tahila's grandmother found the child dead in her bed, and now the parents want answers. Not only was the severity of Tahila's condition ignored by the hospital, but several media sources and health groups reporting on the incident have since made a point of emphasizing the fact that Tahila was not vaccinated for the flu, insinuating that perhaps this lack of flu shot was somehow responsible for the girl's death.

"What they said, verbatim ... (is that) all kids have the flu," explained Earl Johnson, Tahila's father, to FOX 4 News. "'We're not going to test her for the flu; we're not testing anybody today,' (said hospital staff) and there was a lot of kids in the lobby, so is my child the only one? My daughter didn't get tested, and I woke up in the morning and it wasn't even 12 hours from leaving the hospital, and she's dead," he added to NBC 5 News. "I wish I could have made them do more."

Authorities push useless flu shot in aftermath of girl's death

In the immediate aftermath of Tahila's death, the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office conducted an investigation to determine the exact cause of the girl's death. At first, authorities blamed a "flu-like condition," but later declared that Tahila had, indeed, died from complications of the flu. And even though the flu shot has been shown to be medically useless, local health authorities quickly took advantage of the tragedy to promote flu shots, despite the fact that several other children across the U.S. who had gotten a flu shot have also died from the flu in recent weeks.

"She rarely got sick, ever," added Tahila's father about his daughter. "She didn't have allergies. She wasn't allergic to anything. She never missed school -- that's how we knew she was sick; she didn't want to go to school."
